The Month that Never Was

Typically around here at the end of the month I do a recap of all the wonderful things that happened to me over the past 30 days.

So August?

August had a lot of great. A lot of tough. A lot of hard. A lot of fun. And little to no blogging #oops.

Let's get right to the g o o d:

+ I had an amazing blate (Blogger Date) with Marisa who was in town to surprise her dad for his birthday! I was so thrilled we were able to connect and just as happy that we met up at Por Que No for some drinks and appetizers. #nom

+ I somehow completed my 100 mile feat for the month and it wasn't easy. While my guy was running Hood to Coast - I spent a weekend running as much as I felt was possible for my weary legs and logged 36 miles over a span of 38 hours. Ka-ching!

I still had 9 miles remaining when I returned home on Saturday the 31st, but made quick work of that in the mid summer evening and did a celebration dance as I hurried past my driveway for the last triumphant steps.

+ Made it to one year with this guy - even though we still haven't celebrated (see below for frowny faces):

+ I met some awesome people at work through my travels to Canada and wish I had more peers to play with who were as dedicated to work as I am. Geeking-out with people who are impressed my my Excel mastery is a wonderful thing. They also knew how to get me to come out of my shell a little bit. Beer in a Bag, anyone?

Work and work travel caused me to miss several wonderful things this month that I would have loved to be a part of. 

  • Hood to Coast

  • Intramural Softball

  • My Cousin's Beautiful Barn Wedding

  • My Own 1 Year Anniversary Celebration (are we still going to celebrate, Dan?)

  • Thirst Thursdays

Doesn't my Hood to Coast family look like FUN!?

Hopefully a new month will bring winds of change - for the better!

Loved getting the chance to hang with you too, Jessi! I am amazed at your miles and work dedication this month, but don't leave Dan hanging for that celebration ;)

Wow, what a bummer that you missed so much stuff! But traveling to Canada sounds cool, and I totally know what you mean about how great it is to talk with people who appreciate your Microsoft Office skillz!! ;)

36 miles over 38 hours! Wow! And happy 1 year anniversary- I'm bet you two will find a wonderful way to celebrate the milestone, there's no rule it has to be exactly on the date, it's more about showing appreciation for each other and reinforcing the relationship anyway, which needs to specific day!
